Event Description:
The Washington State Parks Folk & Traditional Arts Program invites the public to the 14th Annual Salish Sea Native American Cultural Celebration at Deception Pass State Park on Fidalgo Island. Hosted by the Swinomish and Samish Canoe Families, the celebration runs from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 8th at the Bowman Bay picnic area on the Fidalgo Island side of Deception Pass State Park, 41020 State Route 20, Oak Harbor. Join the Tribes’ canoe families for a ride in wood dugout canoes, share a traditional meal and engage with tribal music, storytelling and arts. The celebration raises awareness of the rich cultural heritage of the Tribes and honors their deep connections to Washington’s lands and waters. The event is made possible by the participation of the Samish Indian Nation and the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community. The family-friendly event will feature free canoe rides and a salmon and frybread meal for purchase. Proceeds from fooed sales support the canoe families’ participation in the annual Tribal Canoe Journey—where tribes and nations from the Pacific Northwest travel by canoe to different host communities along the Salish Sea. The 2019 Paddle Journey will be hosted by the Lummi Nation near Bellingham from July 24-28. Learn more about the Paddle to Lummi at: https://paddletolummi.org/
